Newsletter 21st June 2020


We have received 37 memberships so far.  We usually have around 100 members.  I realise that these are not normal times and the club isn’t running as it usually does; however your membership fees will go to keep the club running when we return to our club meetings again.  So if you haven’t sent in your membership forms and payments, we would appreciate if you could do so.  The annual cost if you want to be unaffiliated to England Athletics is £15.00  If you wish to include England Athletic membership as well, it is £30.00.

The link to the membership form is below.  Please make sure that you use the updated form and that you have the correct bank details on any BACS payment you make.  Any queries, please let either myself or Sue know.

Membership form can  be found here:-


Virtual Challenges

I hope you have all seen the Bingo card for this week’s challenge.  (See link if not).  There have been a number of posts from people who are taking part although I haven’t seen any fancy dress yet!!!  Ledbury Harrier Bingo

We also have our Ledbury Harriers baton which is making it’s way around the area.  Please see the posts on Facebook to see where it is currently.  Find it and take it for a run!  Then post a picture of where you have left it.


Change in Government Advice regarding exercise as of 1st June 2020

The government guidance can be found here.

England Athletics have now updated their guidance on resuming athletics activity.

This is the advice:-

  • Exercise outdoors only in groups of up to 6 people providing athletes/runners maintain social distancing advice i.e. 2m apart if from a different household
  • A coach and up to 5 athletes or runners can train together provided they maintain social distancing i.e. 2m apart if from a different household

Full details can be found here:-

At the moment, this means that we will not be running as a club. We will keep in touch by newsletters and virtual events. As soon as we are able to meet safely as a group we will let you know.


Have a good week.  Take care and keep safe.
